They should also possess a strong understanding of the developmental needs of early adolescents, experience with curriculum design and student-centered teaching and learning practices, and demonstrated ability to work with a diversity of student backgrounds and learning styles.
Tandem Friends seeks teachers who bring diverse skills, knowledge and interests; a willingness to learn new things; and an appreciation for collaboration with students. At TFS, all teachers are active community members who share in the general support and care of the school community, serve as grade-level advisors, and collaboratively lead service learning and overnight trips among other activities.
Tandem Friends School aspires to be an equitable and inclusive school community. The school welcomes applications from candidates who will contribute to an atmosphere in which all are valued and supported.
